Oh, my, what a day! 30-40" of powder on top of about 3 feet base, we spent the day getting stuck and getting unstuck and then getting stuck again! It was awesome! Temps this morning at 9:00 when we got started hovered around -4f, but it warmed up to a balmy 20 by mid-afternoon. I'm getting too old to keep up with these kids!!

It's been too cold for me to get out the last few days. I know what you mean about sledding with these young guys; I always like to have one or two with to make sure we can get out.

WOW! what a day of riding! 2 weeks ago we had close to 2 feet of perfect snow here and luckily a friend let me ride his MXZ fora bout an hour and a half in it, and thursday of last week when I finally got my XC back together enough to at least test ride it it was 40 degrees and RAINING! the following day was close to zero degrees turning everything to a ROCK! Most the snow is gone, and whats left is pure ice. Thats how my life goes though. Glad someone gets to have fun!

I put on 75 miles yesterday. It was not too bad but it was icy. We need some snow but I need a few days from work so about this time next week will be good.

Road trip to Oregon!!!!!!!!!

Went out on New Year's Eve too... Had 68" of snow on the ground. Below the top couple feet of snow, it was packed pretty well. We went on on 136's, and never got stuck once! Did a lot of (attempted) carving... it was sweeeeet!

Nice pics. I'm too old to get stuck anymore. So when you say it was awesome, my back would disagree.

Found my pics... a couple of them, at least. Most of the tracks out here were ours!

That looks fun too!!

Hey, voodoo, the secret is going out with 5 guys MUCH younger than you! And when you get stuck, look like you are having chest pains or something. Works like a charm!
(Hope Kilroy doesn't see this post, he'll quit helping me get unstuck!)
